Sovereign Gold Coins

Struck in 22 carat gold, the sovereign was originally issued as a circulation coin with a nominal value of one pound.


In 1913, sovereigns were issued at the Royal Mint, London, and at Melbourne, Perth and Sydney in Australia and Ottawa Canada. Many coins were melted down during the First World War to pay for Britain's war debt. We have a selection of grades and mints available for the 1913 George V sovereign.
